“Pre-existing Conditions” is the result of a collaborative excavation of various illegal dump sites near Albuquerque. Cecilia McKinnon and Lance McGoldrick have sourced materials for installation, sculptures, and trash readymades from these informal sites, examining cycles of production, consumption, and planned obsolescence. The artists give consideration and new context to common trash, attempting to present waste objects as both repellent and beautiful.

The two artists, both redheads, share a common background in printmaking as well as a love of working with messy, often decaying materials. The artists share a mutual fascination with objects which are broken and abandoned, and with repurposing found objects and materials within sculptural practices. Cecilia McKinnon, an active member of GRAFT collective, is an intermedia artist and curator, interested in textiles, installation, and performance. Lance Ryan McGoldrick, an artist with Meow Wolf collective, is based in Albuquerque, NM. Working both solo and in collaboration, Lance’s work often takes on an architectural scale and has frequently been presented in non-traditional art spaces.

Sanitary Tortilla Factory is an alternative arts venue, exhibition and fabrication space. Originally SCA Contemporary Gallery, Sanitary Tortilla Factory is in the first phase of a seven-year plan for the multi-faceted visual arts center. The final complex will feature at least twenty-artist studios, a full-sized fabrication space, and two exhibition spaces. In the summer of 2017, they launched the sculpture-based residency program that provides workspace, housing, and a stipend for 4-6 weeks for an artist or collaborative that culminates in a show in the gallery.
